Watt-hour per kilogram
The watt-hour per kilogram (SI abbreviation: W⋅h/kg) is a unit of specific energy commonly used to measure the density of energy in batteries and capacitors. One watt-hour per kilogram is equal to 3600 joules per kilogram.
The batteries that Tesla uses in their electric cars have about 254 W⋅h/kg , compared to supercapacitors that are typically between 3-10 W⋅h/kg , albeit with research ongoing into enabling much higher values.
